D–S–TERRIFIC AUTHORSHIP DEBUT
In playing off words, Tangela Collins-Myers could be appropriately described as one who’s soft-spoken, humble, yet powerful.
There is, by all accounts, a variety of reasons why, something by which…well, perhaps she could explain it better.
“Actually, I didn’t have a vision of writing a book,” Collins-Myers, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, describing the memorable developments that ultimately gave way to her having made her authorship debut.
As Collins-Myers recalls, fellow North Carolina businesswoman, Elder Joan T. Randall, proved to be the spiritual game changer, of sorts, as it pertained to her having captured her ceremonious breakthrough as a writer.
“I met our visionary author, Joan T. Randall, at a time when she was doing a journaling challenge in January 2020 and I participated,” Collins-Myers recalls. “That was my first time really ever consistently writing.”

Given the masterful strides she’s made in recent months, it certainly won’t be the last time Collins-Myers puts her newfound writing mechanics on display.
Collins-Myers is amongst a gallery of co-authors who have collectively assembled Randall’s anthology, The Image In The Mirror: The Reflection That Inspired The Courage To Live Limitlessly, which is scheduled to be officially released in March 2021.
For Collins-Myers a native of Wadesboro, North Carolina — a rural Anson County establishment that is comprised of roughly 5,813 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — having made her authorship coming out party was an opportunity worth embracing, given the rash of obstacles she’s endured.
“After the (journaling) challenge, Joan announced that she was going to be doing an anthology,” Collins-Myers explained. “Initially, I had a thought that I wouldn’t do the anthology because I’m wasn’t an author. I was later prompted by the Holy Spirit to do the book, so I did.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Because if God said it, that settles, as Collins-Myers had ultimately come to discover.
And so it came to pass, an awe-inspiring chapter in The Image In The Mirror: The Reflection That Inspired The Courage To Live Limitlessly Collins-Myers is responsible for composing entitled, “From Shy To S.H.Y.,” a title that’s accompanied by the acronym that stands for “Soft-spoken, Humble, Yet powerful.”
“The circumstances in which you are born often helps shape the person you become, but it does not define your destiny,” Collins-Myers, explaining the divine message she aiming to send to her readers. “You have the power and the choice to live the life you desire. There are going to be trials and tribulations along the way that will trigger unpleasant emotions, test your faith, make you question your significance, but you must stand up and believe in yourself, (realizing) you are worth it.”
Most importantly, to Collins-Myers’ credit, she goes to great lengths to challenge her reading audience to “forgive and release those that may have hurt you and move forward, knowing that God will never leave you, nor forsake you.”
“And above all things, love God and one another,” Collins-Myers, a lifetime member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, says without hesitation.
Interestingly enough, this new author’s spiritually-empowering story comes amid one of the darkest seasons of her life, she recalls.
“While writing this anthology entry, the attacks and emotional distractions were so great. I lost not one, but two people who meant the world to me just two days apart,” explained Collins-Myers, alluding to the deaths of her last living grandparent, Helen Polk Collins (whom she wrote about in Randall’s anthology), and her uncle, Steve Boggan, who died in July 2020.
“I had a challenging decision to make: Do I pull out of the anthology and not publish my story to create the space I needed to grieve? Or should I persevere and push past the pain to get my story completed and submitted by the deadline, (which was) due the week of both funerals,” Collins-Myers, a Financial Strategist, Money Mindset Coach, and Business Consultant, continued. “With the help of God and my new angels, I got it done.”
Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for His children peace that surpasses understanding as Collins-Myers found out.

“I dedicate my story and contribute its completion to the strength of my grandma and my best friend and all that she taught me,” Collins-Myers said. “This is for you, Grandma Helen and Uncle Steve.”
Eloquently and emphatically said by an authorship newcomer, who could be appropriately described as one who’s soft-spoken, humble, yet powerful.
Now we know why.
